I wrote a long response to your misinformation, Aqua, and the machine ate it.

Perhaps the silver to gold ratio was as low as you say for about 2 hours on a solitary Wednesday afternoon in January 1980.  Little guys holding physical silver (or gold) couldn't get the prices that were quoted that afternoon on the big exchanges, not even close.  In November 1979 through January 1980, sellers had to take BIG discounts for their physical when they wanted to sell.  For the few buyers, dealers charged full price or more.

Same thing in 1985 when a lower extreme of the silver to gold ratio was hit.

Nice chart.

It could have been 17 to 1 briefly in 1980.  I recall silver topped out at about $50 and gold at $848.   It didn't last long.

I will say it again, at the extremes the little guy can't get the price guoted when selling or he can't get the product at all at the quoted price if he wants to buy.

In the toppy days of late 1979 and early 1980, the precious metals sellers with hard stuff to sell had to either accept a strongly discounted price or they had to keep their stuff.

If you want the physical, you need to be in the market accumulating/buying on a calm day, when it seems like there is not a single cloud in the clear blue economic sky.

You can't go to the lumberyard for plywood when the eye of the hurricane is upon you.

LOL.  Check your CDN.  Today the little guys don't even get "melt" for some of their gold coins, much less the silver ones.

ESPECIALLY in areas served by this unique method of water distribution

HOWEVER, pretty sure it's a LONG term play, NOT a 2018 investments

You're missing mmmmmmm's joke.  You are far too serious.

If a wealthy person buys real estate (or anything else) because they believe in global warming, then it's by its nature a "hot" investment.

Ha ha.

Looks like the ratio drops back down during monetary resets. Should be seeing another one shortly.
